socks with sandals

So many people in the United States are so against wearing sandals with socks. Well, I like to think that I wear socks, but then i wear sandals with it. Better explanation:

* Sandals with socks: The decision is to wear sandals first. Then it’s like, “oh i’ll wear socks with that.” Typical situation: Going out shopping or in general public.

* Socks with sandals: This decision here starts with merely wearing socks at home, and then you have to quick run outside to throw away the trash. Sandals are a perfect fit for this situation, but why take off your socks?

I’m all for socks with sandals. It’s kinda nice that it’s really dorky to have such a combination. Dorkiness is cool. I don’t care what the Miller Lite commericial tells me.

Somebody has to be dorky, otherwise there would be no such thing. Quite honestly, I don’t have the self-esteem to be a dork. I would love to be able to wear socks with sandals, but I would be really self-conscious about it. Dorkiness IS cool … too cool for me

this thought is crying out for a photo or two as documentation.

So, where’s the photo? 😐 Sandals with socks acceptance, IMHO, depends upon the color (and condition!) of the socks. Dark sandals require dark socks, light sandals, light colored socks. Matching colors whenever possible. Gosh, I sound like a snob! 😮 Do sandal & sock wearing persons do so to hide poor toenail hygiene? Anybody see the latest trend among the hip & beautiful salesgirls of the currently hip and beautiful mall clothing stores? (think Abercrombie) They wear leg warmers with flip-flops.

Personally I never wear socks with sandals. It’s my attempt to avoid the “farmer foot” look. We have all seen the people at the pool who have glorious leg tans that turn into pasty blinding white skin at their ankles. It is ironic that by using socks so much these people look like they are still wearing socks even when they are not.

Something tells me we’re never going to see Spud in sandals with socks and Spud in sandals without socks

Heyyy, I’m quite proud of my all-over pasty blinding white skin. :o| (I don’t tan) Spuddly, have you considered tattooed socks? Tattoos are art, right? 😉

Mmmm — IMO, pasty all over is attractive (and more healthy than a tan). Pale skinned ladies are yummy, like marshmallow. I used to wear socks with sandals to school 😀 but that was when my mum dressed me. Now, I just don’t wear socks. Ugg boots are the way to go in DILIGAF footwear.
